Lavrov calls for stopping flow of terrorists and arms to Syria

Moscow, SANA-Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stressed the necessity of stopping the flow of terrorists and weapons to Syria via Turkey.

Lavrov’s comments came during a joint press conference with his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh in Moscow.

“It is a very important issue to dissociate the Syrian opposition from terrorists to prevent the triumph of terrorists in Syria and to promote intra-Syrian political dialogue,” he said, adding that a delay is bad in the fight against terrorism.

“Many months have passed since the UN Security Council approved decisions of the Syria Support Group, this is more than enough time for any armed formation to make its choice: join the regime of cessation of fire or not,” Lavrov said.

“Along with the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, all those armed formations that have not joined the regime of cessation of hostilities, or joined it but do not observe it, should bear all responsibility,” Lavrov said.

“I hope that the United States, which agreed with that logic, will join us in practical actions to prevent the current situation from being used to strengthen the positions of terrorists on the ground,” he said.

He called for supporting a comprehensive and intra-Syrian political process without preconditions or outside interference.
